Kyle cadets learn about lifeboats

June 16, 2017

A group of Army Cadets visited Kyle RNLI Rescue Station. 

The cadets from Kyle Detachment, 1st Battalion the Highlanders ACF, visited the station to learn more about the RNLI and its role as one of the UK Emergency Services.

The cadets received a presentation about the day-to-day operation of the station, and were given a hands-on look at the lifeboat and a chance to try on safety gear.

Major George MacDonald, Ross Company Commander, said afterwards: “It was an excellent evening with the cadets. They asked the volunteers some great questions, which were complimented by the team. I think the RNLI may have a few new volunteers in the future!”

The visit was organised as part of the Cadet in the Community section of the Army Proficiency Syllabus which teaches cadets their responsibilities as citizens and helps them participate fully in the life of their community.
